P/V (“price to value”) is a calculation that compares the prices of the stocks in a portfolio to Southeastern’s appraisal of their intrinsic values. The ratio represents a single data point about a stock and should not be construed as something more. P/V does not guarantee future results, and we caution investors not to give this calculation undue weight.
The Funds are subject to stock market risk, meaning stocks in a Fund may fluctuate in response to developments at individual companies or due to general market and economic conditions. Also, because the Funds generally invest in 15 to 25 companies, share value could fluctuate more than if a greater number of securities were held. As it relates to the Partners Fund, mid-cap stocks held may be more volatile than those of larger companies. As it relates to the Small-Cap Fund, smaller company stocks may be more volatile with less financial resources than those of larger companies. As it relates to the International and Global Funds, investing in non-US securities may entail risk due to non-US economic and political developments, exposure to non-US currencies, and different accounting and financial standards. These risks may be higher when investing in emerging markets.
